This is one of 18 videos representing lectures on digital photography, from a version of my Stanford course CS 178 that was recorded at Google in Spring 2016. Links to all 18 videos, my slides (in PDF form), and the course applets and assignments are on the Schedule page of the course web site: http://sites.google.com/site/marclevoylectures

For convenience, here is a playlist of all 18 lectures, in order: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7ddpXYvFXspUN0N-gObF...

Note that the quality of the audio is poor in this lecture (#1) due to an inferior microphone; subsequent lectures have better audio.

Regarding captioning and translation, all of the lectures have auto-captioning enabled. This also enables auto-translation if you switch the captioning language. The quality of this captioning is uneven, and is probably poor in lecture #1 due to its inferior audio quality. People are welcome to help me by captioning these lectures - in English or whatever language they speak!

Finally, I apologize for being unable to field the many good technical questions these lectures are generating, including many that I am receiving through other channels. Given my day job at Google, I simply cannot afford the time. I am sorry!

The music track atop the UC Berkeley students' video of assembling a Canon camera (beginning at 1:04:25) has been suppressed to avoid copyright infringement and to allow auto-captioning of my lecture (enabling the second depends on avoiding the first). This suppression negatively impacts the quality of my narration during that portion of the Berkeley video, but this can't be helped.
